It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation's finest actors in the prime of his life. Heath Ledger's diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor.
A third-rate political wheel-horse, with the face of a moving-picture actor, the intelligence of a respectable agricultural implement dealer, and the imagination of a lodge joiner? A benign blanka decent, harmless, laborious, hollow-headed mediocrity.Fred hobson

Just as the good actor perform well whatever role the poet assigns, so too must the good man perform whatever Fortune assigns. For she, says Bion, just like a poet, sometimes assigns the leading role, sometimes that of the supporting role; sometimes that of a king, sometimes that of a beggar.

When I came to faith, I thought I would have to stop being an actor, because it’s all about artifice and manipulation. But we’re living in a world where God doesn’t really have an influence, unless it’s fundamentalists, so I’ll always be an outsider because of my faith.

There's a freedom there and an understanding of my career and the things I've done. I'm seen here as primarily a comic actor, which is OK, but I can go to New York and I do something that's very emotional. It would be lovely at some point to do something like that on film.nathan lane

I love the life of an actor because you spend brief amounts of time with other people and then you just leave. I need to be alone a lot, and I need the outdoors.madeleine stowe
The play is done; the curtain drops,Slow falling to the prompter’s bellA moment yet the actor stopsAnd looks around to say farewell.It is an irksome word and task:And when he’s laughed and said his sayHe shows, as he removes the mask,A face that’s anything but gay.william makepeace thackeray
When one confesses to an act, one ceases to be an actor in it and becomes its witness, becomes a man that observes and narrates it and no longer the man that performed it.jorge luis borges
The free market tide has now receded. In its place has come state capitalism, a system in which the state functions as the leading economic actor and uses markets primarily for political gain.ian bremmer
Moviegoers like to believe that those they have made stars are great actors. People used to say that Gary Cooper was a fine actor probably because when they looked in his face they were ready to give him their power of attorney.Pauline Kael

China is an old nation with a colourful history. Its booming economy has triggered an appetite and a curiosity around the world for its art and culture , one that continues to grow. I can, however, tell people that it is a show with no actor .
A singer ... is no more than an actor set to music.
There's something strange about theater . My characters consistently demonize elitism, but of course it's taking place in a theater where only so many people can see it.
